The Expenditure Report 2013 published by the Department of Expenditure and Reform in the context of Budget 2013 sets out the target for savings €56m in 2014 in gross current expenditure.  In preparation for the 2014 Estimates and Budgetary processes, my Department is, at the request of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, seeking to identify measures that could yield additional savings in gross current expenditure for 2015 and 2016. It will be a matter for the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform to publish the outcome of these deliberative processes in due course.
